In the early years of the American Revolution, the Boston Tea Party was but one symptom of the mounting mutual embitterment between Britain and the American colonies. Author Nick Bunker examines the lethal blend of politics, personalities, and economics that culminated in an all-out war for independence.
Nick Bunker is the author of Making Haste from Babylon, a history of the Mayflower Pilgrims and, most recently, An Empire on the Edge: How Britain Came to Fight America.
